Buttigieg to skip AIPAC conference joining Sanders, Warren, Klobuchar

United Staes (QNN)- Leading Democratic 2020 candidate Pete Buttigieg will be skipping AIPAC conference next week, joining other leading candidates, tweeted pro-Israel journalist Jacob Kornbluh quoting a spokesperson for Buttigieg’s campaign.

Leading candidates Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Amy Klobuchar have announced earlier that they will skip the Zionist Israeli-backed conference.

Sanders said on Sunday he would not attend this year’s AIPAC’s conference because it offers a platform to leaders who “express bigotry.”

He added that he is “concerned about the platform AIPAC provides for leaders who express bigotry and oppose basic Palestinian rights.”

Earlier this month, Warren vowed to skip AIPAC while appearing to agree with a supporter at a campaign event that pro-Israel group is an “unholy alliance” of “Islamophobes, anti-Semites, and white nationalists.”

Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., also confirmed to the Jewish News Syndicate that she would not be attending due to the upcoming primaries.
